The reason why dogs don't live as long as people according to a 6 year old:
"People are born so that they can learn how to live a good Life - - like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?' The Six-year-old continued, 'Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long."
Here are some signs your pet might display when it may be time to speak to your veterinarian about euthanasia:
If you are considering euthanasia for your pet, your veterinarian can be a medical guide and companion for you. There will be qualituy of life discussions, financial discussions, and every other element of end-of-life care will be discussed.
You also need to remember that you are the pet parent and you know your pet better then anyone does. As the guardian of this pet, you are intuitively aware of your pet's emotions, feelings, and genenral nature. All discussions and aspects of your pet should be considered while thinking through this emotional decision.
